Looking for the ultimate birthday party for your summer baby? A party at Wet’n’Wild Sydney could just be the thing you need!
A birthday party at Wet’n’Wild Sydney was the combined brilliant idea of my 8-year-old daughter Scarlett, and her BFF Heidi… who are born within a week of each other. After sussing out the party package on the Wet’n’Wild website, and chatting to Heidi’s mum, we quickly agreed that a joint birthday party was the way to go! Just quietly, we were both excited about the idea of trying out all the waterslides, even if we had to supervise ten 6-10 year olds!
Wet’n’Wild opens at 10am, so we arranged to collect the children from their homes around 9am. We each have big 7-seater cars, so could take five children each. Wet’n’Wild is located at Prospect, which is about a 30-40 minute drive from main suburbs on the North Shore like Chatswood, Gordon & Wahroonga.
We’d already received our wristbands in the post, so it was quick to enter the park. After checking in with Guest Services, we were taken to the dedicated party area by our Party Host. It was a large grassed picnic area with lots of shaded tables and benches, and just a 50m walk to the lockers and toilets.
After settling into our spot and touching up the sun block, the kids couldn’t wait to get wet’n’wild! With excited squeals, we were off to explore the huge water wonderland.
We spent the day trying out as many slides as we could, as well as the Dinosaur Lagoon (where you can relax on an inflatable ring, as you float along the long lazy river) and The Beach (which has Australia’s largest Wave Pool). We were there from 10am-4pm… and whilst we were exhausted by it was time to leave, everybody wanted to stay longer.
The party package includes lunch for the children (either chicken tenders, cheese burger or veggie burger with hot chips and a juice popper). You simply let them know when you’d like the meals delivered, and hey presto, they’re waiting for you!
It also includes delicious cupcakes, which hit the spot perfectly when we needed a mid-afternoon sugar hit to keep the energy levels high. Again, you just let them know what time you’d like them (so no need for them to be sitting in the sun for hours).
It may have been stress-free (and actually, a LOT of fun) for the adults organising the party, but did the kids enjoy it too? Here’s what they had to say:
‘My Wet’nWild party was the best birthday party I’ve ever had. It was the best day of my life! Going down those slides was super fun, and the wave pool was lots of fun too. I want to go back and do it all over again.’ – Scarlett, Birthday Girl, 8 years old.
‘It was so much fun and the slides were incredible. It was the best party ever.’ – Heidi, Birthday Girl, 8 years old.
‘Wet’n’Wild was lots of fun… so much fun I want to take all my friends there for my party! Some slides are a little scary but that’s why it’s fun. It was the best party ever. ‘ – Zoe, 8 years old
‘She has not stopped talking about it- her brothers are very envious!’ – Jasmine’s mum
The Birthday Package at Wet’n’Wild Sydney is great value. You need a minimum of 10 guests, and it’s $55/child, but this includes pretty much everything you need for the day, including:
With just two adults supervising, we agreed that 10 children was plenty for us to look after. And by sharing the party, we also shared the cost – so it was just $275 per family.
